Winter can sometimes make us feel down. The darkness that settles quickly and for longer and longer, or the nature taking a break. Animals leave us or hide to flee the cold of winter. Sometimes we would also like to hibernate until spring to avoid this inescapable seasonal depression.
Thanks to a population known to be happy, the Danes have been able to remedy this winter depression with the hygge living. Pronounced "hoo-ga", this style is an art of living that promotes a sense of well-being at home.
To get a good idea of this lifestyle, imagine yourself reading a book in front of a fireplace, taking a bubble bath while listening to good music or having a glass of wine with friends in a warm and candle-lit atmosphere. In brief, to fully enjoy moments alone or surrounded by those you love while remaining in the comfort of your home and feeling good about it.
This trend is the very expression of Scandinavian style. Simple, beautiful and very practical. Flashy and overly luxurious decors are not synonyms of "hygge" style. Rather, it evokes a "cozy" atmosphere that is within everyone's reach. The Danes are concerned about social equity and this style is a reflection of this value of life.
Now that you can imagine yourself in your own home while embracing a "hygge" lifestyle, let's look at how Beaulieu can inspire an ideal cocooning decor.
